      • NOTE: You can sort on multiple columns by holding down the Shift key while clicking.
    • If no servers are visible due to Alt Browser filtering, you will see "All servers have been hidden by the Alt Browser. Check your filters."

(old changelog format)
  • 2012-01-06 FFA servers should now show the proper number of available slots (thanks Lam).
  • 2012-01-04 Hi! Servers sporting the "PQL" ruleset are now labelled as such. The entire "Map" column (including the stuff in parenthesis) is now fair game for filtering. This means you can filter on "Premium", "PQL", [player_name], etc.
  • 2011-08-31 Fixed updating for Scriptish users, and improved the auto-updater for Greasemonkey (now displays new version number in the prompt).
  • 2011-01-29 Fixed incorrect sorting of the rank column.
  • 2011-01-22 GM 0.9.x compatibility, small fix to server name display, fix for "Live Game Info" getting pinned off-screen.
